Inspired by the Oneness of “As Above So Below”,
A forest under a red sky, Above
and growing golden, Below.
Could this be a reflection or roots?
However seen, it is my imaginary forest
in search of its fulfillment.

  1. You know, I keep wandering about your site, clicking almost randomly. And I always find more beautiful things to look at. And look at again.

  2. sooooo deep! I’m reading lots into this but won’t say unless I’ve got it COMPLETELY wrong! For me though, I love the fact that the ‘alive’ trees are coloured with a ‘bloody’ background whilst the ‘dead’ ones have a clear, calm, albeit it grey background. There’s lots there – would love to know what you were thinking when you did it!

    • I must say I really like your perspective, Ken! I very rarely reveal my thoughts, not because of a vice or something. 2 main reasons: 1. I don’t like to influence the viewer and 2. I’m not good with words! I can tell you that I was thinking of the many aspects within us creating a very unique whole [as above …] Thank you very very much for your wonderful comment.

      • I can understand both those points Marina! Yes, I can see what you say in the picture. It really is one to get you thinking – which is my favourite kind of artwork! For this reason, Munch, Bacon and Picasso are, for me, some of the greatest artists- because they make you think about their work. You did the same here 🙂

        • My favorite too, among others. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your comment and how happy it makes me, as I’ve always enjoyed paintings that make me think. To hear that my work does the same is …moving. Thank you, Ken.

  3. I hadn’t seen these. They are wonderful. The idea of “as above so below” provides a great vehicle for you. But it’s the colors and the grace that are so enchanting.

  4. Wow!! That red sky is very powerful! And the underground — or is it a reflection in a still pond — is so peaceful. Yeah, I can’t get this comment done because I keep scrolling back up to look at it!

    • First one was right! Underground or inside or however you wish to look at it… all part of one. Got your comment already and I’m very grateful for it! Thank you!

  5. Title terrific, watercolors never better; not always commenting but, certainly, always watching & liking your art; what’s the weather like in Athens?…

    • …and I’m very grateful for your kind words, Lindy. Thank you. It’s been rainy but I see a cloud free sky today. Nice and sunny, not too cold, not too warm. Just right! In your[?] country?

  6. SOooooooooooooooooooooooooo beautifullllllllllllll my dear……..wowowowowow…………..!!! Amazing …. most amazing…!

  7. LOVE the close up of the red and green forestry. It’s like holiday in the summer. LOVE! Keep on creating! You’re phenomenal as an artist. 😀


Happy to hear your thoughts
